You Said It, Nov. 6, 2011

For November, join us in observing Random Acts of Kindness month by sharing with You Said It Readers the nicest thing anyone has ever done for you. We’ll start printing your responses next week.

Peachtree Shopping Center has really turned into a nice area with all the new businesses and more coming. Now if an Arby’s would come into Clifton, all would be good.

Regarding the story of the teenager gutting his mom’s dog, there are no words to describe how sick this kid is. He should be held for more than $3,000. The judge who decided this bond also needs to reconsider his error.

How come these people don’t have problems with all the motorists who don’t follow all the rules? They probably have domineering bosses, nagging spouses and try to bully cyclists to boost their egos. Maybe they even lost a love interest to a cyclist.

School District 51 needs to cut overhead because of the cuts in tax money. The quickest and easiest way to cut spending is to eliminate all assistants. If titled employees can’t handle their job without assistants, replace them. During my private sector career I held five management positions, all without an assistant.

People of Mesa County didn’t vote against the kids, they voted against School District 51’s administration. It’s time to make cuts at the upper level, not give raises to them. At least 25 percent of School District 51’s administration costs need to be cut.

It wasn’t a vote against education for children, it was a vote on the dissatisfaction the public has with our education system. To cut reading aides, rather than overpaid administrators, shows us the type of thinking that is in charge of our education system.

The defeat of 3B simply reinforces the reality that while Mesa County may be a pretty good place to retire, it’s a lousy place to raise a family.

“Good neighbor attitude”? In Palisade? Have you been living under a rock for the past year? Those two phrases should never be used in the same sentence. From divisive complaints about too-noisy bars, fights in bars, political recall and name-calling, Palisade is a poster child for bad neighbor attitude.

Sorry, Diane Cox, but thanks to you and your out-of-town cohorts, you helped keep the medical dispensary in Palisade.

Anyone else called the Mesa County Sheriff’s Compliment/Complaint line? I have, three days in a row now, with no return call.

Sure, drill for energy sources on BLM. But don’t transfer public property into private hands through the old mining laws.

No one will take the “Occupy Wall Street” protesters seriously until they stop eating cake and bring out the guillotine.
